The examples at
offer some choices. More would be possible by outputting info and then
using SGPLOT or, for even more control, SGRENDER

Subject: Graphing data from a cluster analysis
I am helping a friend conduct a cluster analysis. I would like to know if
there is any other way of displaying results other than a tree diagram. I
performed the analysis on 194 cases and the resulting diagram was not
something I could present to others or submit for publication.
Specifically, the font size was tiny because it was squeezed to fit onto a
single page. However, even if I print the tree diagram on two pages, it
still does not look very professional. I was hoping that perhaps the data
can be graphed on a cartisian plane with ellipses drawn around each cluster.
Is something like that possible? Is there an alternative to a tree diagram?
Snippets of code would really help me out a lot.
